Neurological Rehabilitation Program

Physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech-language pathology in one location!

The overall goal of neurological rehabilitation is to improve an individual’s quality of life and maximize functional independence.

Our Specialists

  • Occupational therapist: Evaluates and treats an individual’s ability to use his/her upper body and fine motor skills as required to complete functional activities, like dressing, bathing, and eating.
  • Custom orthotic fabrication for upper extremity can be considered.
  • Physical therapist: Evaluates and treats an individual’s lower body strength, balance, and coordination to improve transfer and gait performance as well as minimize fall risk.
  • Lite Gait is an example of a piece of equipment that can be used with individuals (stroke, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, amputee and orthopedic) who need to learn postural control, how to modify weight bearing, work on balance, and/or need a safe environment for fall free activities.
  • Speech-language pathologist: Evaluates and treats individuals with voice disorders, swallowing difficulty, speech impairment, word finding difficulty, and cognitive (i.e., attention and memory) changes.
  • Modified barium swallow studies can be completed to assess the degree of swallowing dysfunction. Acoustic evaluation of voice and speech using instrumentation/equipment can also be completed.
